Tigo Ghana has presented smartphones and 1-year fully connected modems to graduating cadet officers of the Ghana Military Academy at the Military Academy and Training Schools (MATS) in Accra.
At a short ceremony, the Mobile Network Operator handed over the items worth GHS 19,500 and a cheque for GHS 10,000 as their contribution to deepening the relationship with the Ghana Military Academy (GMA) and the Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) as a whole.

He said hoped such gestures would deepen the civil-military relationship and urged all organisations to emulate the gesture of Tigo.
Present at the ceremony were the Chief of the Naval Staff, Rear Admiral GM Biekro; Chief of Air Staff, Air Vice Marshall Samson-Oje; Commandant, MATS, Rear Admiral EA Bonsu; Deputy Commandant, MATS, Brig Gen EMK Yeboah; Commander GMA, Brig Gen M Akpastu; senior officers and some management members from Tigo.
